Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid to Be Tested by LeasePlan
It’s predicted that the Prius PHEV will have a combined fuel efficiency of 134.5 mpg coupled with emissions of only 49 g/km of CO2.
“Following our recent Green Fleet award win, we are delighted to once again be at the forefront of developments in the field of environmentally-friendly motoring. We believe it is important for our team to gain first-hand experience of new green vehicles to ensure we can deliver the best advice to our customers,” David Brennan, managing director LeasePlan UK said.
“We have enjoyed a longstanding partnership with Toyota, and we are all excited to see what this innovative new model can bring to the table. This trial will represent another step in delivering the best possible value and innovation to our clients across the UK,” Brennan added.
“Toyota is at the forefront of hybrid technology and our Plug-in hybrid represents the next stage of our development programme. The technology provides all the benefits of an EV but without the downsides of limited performance or driving range. Our partnership with Leaseplan provides their clients with first hand experience of the practical application of this technology prior to the 2012 launch,” added Ewan Shepherd, General Manager Toyota Fleet.
